Steven Tyler

WELCOME TO Kimo’s Vegas ... The Player’s Edge!

THE BETTE MIDLER VIP package includes front row center tickets to The Showgirl Must Go On, VIP escort, two drink vouchers and a meet-n-greet with the Divine Miss M (commemorative photo included). The “Smug Mutha” package is available from Aug. 11 to Sept. 6 and will ding your Black Amex $1,000 per person.

CROSBY, STILLS & NASH concertize at the M Resort’s Villaggio Del Sole Entertainment Piazza Sept. 26 at 8:30 p.m. On Oct. 3, another local fave, Journey, will take the stage at 8 p.m.
